I absolutely loved this book. It was a bit hard to get into, but once you start "getting" it, the author has a wonderful style. She really made me love Mariamne - who seemed to have a wonderful, dry sense of humour. The thoughts expressed in this book are so profound, and I found it to be a wonderful theory of the life of Mary Magdalene and what it may have been like to walk and talk with Jesus.

While the story was interesting enough as I was reading it, I put this book down about half way through and could barely force myself to pick it up again. I did eventually finish it.

I recommend the work of Elaine Pagels to those who want a rigorous, but not dry, non-fiction work that deals with much of what Longfellow touches upon.
